Fields configuration vs Screen scheme

Hey everyone,

I'm a bit confused between field configuration to screen schemes.

basically, if I want to define a custom field to specific issue type and specific project, I can associate this field with the issue type, and specific screen (from my screen's project).

So, why to use field configuration?

 

Thank you,

Shani

A screen scheme tells JIRA what screens a field will appear on for a particular issue type.

A field configuration tells JIRA some configuration details about the field when it is applied to an issue type - mandatory, type of input, and also if it is hidden.

Hey Nic,

Thank you for the quick response.
